A US health think tank distances itself from controversial research on face masks

A US health think tank from the Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California refused to avow the online viral research that claims face masks are “worthless” against COVID19.

In November, the research titled “Facemasks in the COVID-19 era: A health hypothesis” resulted that facemask efficacy is lacking and its health effects are established.

This important research was being attributed to the Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California, but now the university has clarified that it has nothing to do with this research. And the Author has been informed to correct it.

Leading US health think tank says we support wearing face masks, as face masks are an effective way to prevent corona-virus outbreaks.

The study sparked a storm around the world, with many people abandoning face masks, and a large number of research institutes were focusing on this research.

Representatives from Stanford University School of Medicine, referring to the study said that no significant evidence was found in the study. So we think this is useless research and there is no need to act on it.
